Visiting Medical Students

Due the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be accepting applications at this time for any elective opportunities for the 2020-2021 academic year  (June 2020 - May 2021) for any international or Caribbean medical students! LCME students please check VSLO for updates.   



Students who have already earned the equivalent of the MD degree at the time of application or by the time of the start date of the elective are not eligible to apply. 

We participate in the Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO) for LCME-accredited institutions. 

LSU Health Visiting Student Policy can be viewed here.  


Please do NOT directly contact LSU Health Shreveport faculty or administrative staff in an attempt to arrange clinical/research experiences.  The Office of the Registrar is responsible for processing and scheduling ALL elective requests for visiting students.  All students must follow established guidelines and procedures (no exceptions).
